The Sky Bet Championship is on a little bit of a break at the moment and it seems safe to say that there is plenty to look forward to once it resumes.

With the international break on there is little to really get excited about but, at the same time, once it ends the run-in begins and things are going to be tense.

Suddenly, Villa have something to be playing for as we sit inside that top six on a good run of form and, clearly, it is worrying those sides above them.

Indeed, former Leeds player Ben Parker has suggested that we now pose a real threat to their promotion chances with a fixture against them coming right towards the end of the season.

He said via LS11 on YouTube:

“Probably two weeks ago, three weeks ago tops, I was looking at all the fixtures.

“We can get promoted at home against Aston Villa, they’ll have nothing to play for, they’ll be about mid-table’.

“But now, they are in the play-offs. They’ll probably have something to play for, so that makes it a tricky game.”

Certainly, we have become a real worry for them as they hunt down the top two but it is weeks away, so we need to ensure we’re still in form for our sake more than anything else come that game.
